Writersroom website

Welcome to the brand new and improved BBC writersroom website.

As well as launching a whole new look for us, we're also announcing the Script Room - a brand new system for submitting unsoliciting scripts to the BBC - read more on Paul Ashton's blog post.

The new website offers a range of new content for you to browse - from our new Write a Script collection of script writing video tutorials, to our Be Inspired section, where we have video interviews with some of Britain's top TV, radio and theatre writers including Jimmy McGovern, Sarah Phelps, Jack Thorne, Tony Marchant and Toby Whithouse - to name a few.

Established writers talk about how BBC writersroom can help new writers.

 

We've improved our Opportunities section - where you can search for new writing opportunities from the BBC and beyond, and our Script Library - where you can read and download BBC TV, radio and film scripts.

The new site is the result of the hard work of a fantastic team. A big thanks goes to - our Developer/Technical Project Manager (and sometimes camera man!), Paul Thomson, our Producer/Project Manager, Neil Taylor, our design agency Kent Lyons (who also supplied all the original imagery on the site), the whole of the BBC writersroom team and all of the writers who allowed us to interview them.

Have a browse around the new site and tell us what you think - either here on our blog, or via our Twitter.

Stay tuned to the site during March as we'll be launching several exciting new opportunities for writers throughout the course of the month.  If you're interested in writing for comedy - don't forget that our Laugh Track New Writing Talent Search is open for entries until March 21st.

    Hi Geoff,
    The address will be on the site when the first Script Room window opens. If you need to contact us by email, it's writersroom@bbc.co.uk.

    Hi ayckbourn,

    Very glad you like the new site!

    As far the opportunities page, though you can't currently re-order the opps by nearest deadline, you can re-order them based on the most recent opps added. Many writers were telling us that they couldn't easily find when we'd added new opps to the page and we hoped this would help with that.

    Thank you for your suggestion though, we've added it to our very long 'to do' list! :-)

    Hello there.

    Love the new website. Very accessible and snazzy. Just one suggestion... is it possible to add an option to order the opportunities page by deadline? Was much easier when you could glance every day and know which had to be entered first.

    Thanks!
